January 22, 2022 Meeting - Speaker Presentation

Recommended Posts

Our January meeting will be Saturday, January 22 at 3 pm.  Meeting location will be the Estero Community Center (9200 Corkscrew Palms Blvd, Estero, FL 33928)


Jeff D'huyvetter will be giving a presentation on CUC (Clean Up Crew or Clean Up Critters).  Jeff has been collecting with Frank's Marine (his version of vacation days and fun) for over 20 years on his trips to the Keys.  So, the topic will focus on the environment that they are collected, holding, shipping and aquarium care/compatibility of the Florida collected critters.

We will be having a raffle of CUC at this meeting. Items are shipping from the Keys and will be here later in the week. I will update once they arrive. I am expecting 30 to 40 bags. Mix of hermits, snails and other critters.
